The trek through Horton Plains is more nostalgic with a hint of romantic colour. Shaggy-coated Sambhur raise antlered heads and regard you, chewing calmly, amidst the plains. Dark silhouettes of trees and blue- green mountains line the way to the World’s End with its sheer, dramatic drop of nearly a kilometre. Further along the trail, you can cool your feet in picturesque Baker’s Falls, which is part of a small river that winds through the plains.
Nuwara Eliya during the cold season presents a magical world that one must surely take the time to discover. Keep in mind to bring with you as much warm clothing as you can because temperatures can plummet down to five degrees or lower amidst the merry atmosphere. On days such as that, you might be in luck to witness frost clinging on to grass and ferns just before dawn, especially at the Nuwara Eliya Race Course.
